This is the pioneer Software Engineering undergraduate degree programme for Amoud University and would be graduating approximately 28 students for the first time this year in August 2021 as per Academic calendar 2020/2021, against all odds including defying the effects of the covid 19 pandemic that paused many challenges to their studies in the year 2019/2020. The meeting was hosted by the students and graced by the presence of Prof. Mohamoud Mohamed Jama "Derie", Vice President, Public Relations and Community Outreach, Amoud University, alongside Edwin Omondi Okech, Dean, Faculty of Computing and ICT, accompanied by Ahmed Abdilliahi Sh. Ibrahim, Associate Dean, in charge of Examinations, Faculty of Computing and ICT, Amoud University and Warsame Abokor Sh. Abdi, Associate Dean in charge of Academic Affairs, Faculty of Computing and ICT, Amoud University.
Several lecturers who have seen the students through their studies since their Sophomore Academic year were also in attendance such as Suleikha Isak Omar, who is one of the most prolific programming and systems development lecturers who is fondly referred to by students as "mother to the ICT students". Other lecturers present were Mohamed Muse Omar Galde, who is also Administrator, Amoud College of Health Sceinces (ACHS), Amare Mengesha Tsegaye, Farah Osman Dahir and Mead Abdillahi Derie.
Bachelor of Software Engineering programme was inaugurated as the third undergraduate degree programme at the faculty in September 15th, 2018 after Bachelor of Information Technology and Bachelor of Business Information Technology programmes, which were established in September 15th, 2009 and September 2014 respectively.
The students made presentations of four very good projects including E-library Management System, a Somali chat service for proposed use by Amoud University students, among others.
During the colourful diner, the dean of faculty appreciated the Software Engineering class for being not only industrious and quite innovative but also for having really represented Amoud University so well when they were recruited as supervisors during the just concluded Somaliland National Electoral Commission (NEC) work of voter registration and actual voting exercises. Prof. Derie, who graced the event, agreed with the dean's sentiments and encouraged the students to pursue further studies after graduating with the first degree in order to obtain Masters degrees and increase their chances of getting better paying jobs and expanding their scope of understanding and research and publishing capacities.
